The Preston Court
wedding venue features a beautiful Georgian manor house set in spectacular grounds in the village of Preston, near Canterbury. It features a lake and island (called Juliana), a lovely Kentish barn and a carousel! It's a wonderful spot for wedding photography.
Katie and Darren got married at the adjacent St Mildred's Church, with the service conducted by the very welcoming vicar, the Reverend Jo Robertson. It was a lovely ceremony and featured a rousing rendition of The Beatle's 'All you need is love' by the congregation! After the signing of the register we wandered outside for a few candid shots, and also witnessed a surprise fly-past from a Lancaster bomber (heading to the Thanet Air Show). I then took a few group shots and whisked Katie and Darren around the grounds of Preston Court for their bride and groom portrait session. It's such a gorgeous location with so many opportunities for lovely wedding photos.
Kylie and Daryl had a civil ceremony under the gaezbo on the island. After the group shots and portrait session it was on to the carousel. After the wedding breakfast in the beautifully decorated barn they were further entertainments, including a bucking bronco and a fish-and-chip van (and very nice they were too!)
Sarah and Jamie married in St Mildred's Church and then wandered across to Preston Court for the drinks reception. After the group shots and bride and groom portrait sessions in the grounds they also enjoyed the carousel before the wedding breakfast.
Sophie and Rob's wedding was my most recent at Preston Court and the conditions were fabulous. A pleasant temperature but with some cloud cover to soften the light, ideal for a wedding photographer. The gardens were also in full bloom and looked absolutely magnificent. They had their ceremony on the island, followed by a drinks reception on the main lawn and group photos. After their portrait session it was on to the carousel and wedding breakfast.
If you're getting married at the Preston Court wedding venue then please do get in touch.
